Belmont Homes for Sale

The small suburban city of Belmont is situated approximately 15 miles to the west of Uptown Charlotte in Gaston County. It has a population of around 11,000, comfortably nestled in the Piedmont Province, which is a physiographic province of the Appalachian region. Belmont is flanked by the South Fork Catawba and Catawba Rivers, which feed into Lake Wylie through two arms running adjacent to the city, forming a peninsula on which Belmont is nestled. Settlers began developing the area in the vicinity of a fort built by a Dutchman named James Kuykendall. The fort was located in proximity to the South Fork and the Catawba River junction. Another prominent figure in the development of Belmont was Abram Stowe, a veteran of the Civil War. After returning home from the war, Stowe established a small mercantile store and a grand Greek Revival home, one of the oldest structures still standing in Belmont today. In 1871, the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway was constructed. A station was built and named after John Garibaldi, who was responsible for the supervision of the water tank built for the new railroad. The town was initially named after Garibaldi. In 1883, the name of the station was changed to Belmont after a prominent New York banker, August Belmont. In 1895, the small town was incorporated under the name “Belmont.”
